Kazaa is CURSED! Cursed I tell you!

I've downloaded about five songs that play for a second then fade into silence for the remainder of the song. These things are shared by loads of people and have extremely quick download speeds, and the file sizes and everything are OK. I think it's a voodoo plot.

I guess I'll use Soulseek then, I'm starting to get the hang of it...

Actually I'm using Kazaa-lite, which is supposed to screen out viruses and stuff. But still, I'm so tired of downloading something and being all excited about the speed of it and it turns out to be silence and more silence.

I've use Kazaa lite instead of Kazaa. I'm not sure if I like it. Some of the songs are labelled wrong or incomplete so I rarely use it.


I love WinMx. It's a little slower in terms of download time, and if you have dial up then it could take forever to get stuff, but it's just been so much better for me than Kazaa has. I've used WinMx for a long time and I only checked out Kazaa Lite cause so many people post that they use it. I think WinMx is better.

Kazaa-lite is great if you're trying to download things that have been out for a little while. You can usually find tons of sources and get great download times.

If you're ever looking for unreleased or new things, you get the 30 second clips/fake versions all the time. It's quite annoying. I use Soulseek for that kind of stuff.

Hmm...that could explain it then. I was getting the new Blur song and some Richard Ashcroft that was labelled as 'advance', even though it's probably been two months since it's been out.

I'm trying to get some Everything But the Girl but so far, no luck. Soulseek gave me ten measly results and Kazaa's q'ing me or giving me crap times.

Zactly. Also, some of the more obscure stuff is hard or impossible to find on Kazaa. Again, Soulseek is great for that.

I personally prefer Kazaa Lite over Winmx. I found Winmx only to be good for mainstream music.

I found pretty much everything I need so far with Kazaa, and the download time alone is worth it!

Not if you're getting speeds of 0.76 k and 22 results an album.

Soulseek takes forever to search for me, and in the end only comes up with few available results (the rest are usually grayed out).

I think I need to go to bed. Goodnight (morning) everyone.

EDIT: I used Audiogalaxy in the last month before it shut down. Excellent service, and I really wish I could have exploited it further.

WinMx has every live U2 song I have ever looked for, including some rare videos. Aside from a song here or there by other bands, that's really all I ever download. I've harldy found any live U2 stuff that I want on Kazaa lite.

But I agree, the download time on Kazaa lite is worth it, which is why I continue to use it when I'm looking for a song other than a live U2 song.

You don't already have all of U2's stuff?

I had the same problem with Richard Ashcroft, Yertle. I have the album now, though, so if you haven't been able to download it by the time you read this, PM me, and I'll upload the tracks and you can try to get them from me through Kazaa.
